According to Valeria Bednarik from FXStreet, the movement from 1.2550 to 1.2625 "was for the most corrective as the critical price zone held, probably triggered by some profit taking."

With a successful break above 1.2640, he pair will have free way to 1.2660 before 1.2685. To the downside, a "renewed selling interest that pushes price below 1.2550," Bednarik says, "should lead to a test of the year low at 1.2501."
